The advertized ride height specified for this product is a measurement taken from a completely stock vehicle. Your vehicle's actual ride height after installing these springs may be more or less depending on your vehicle's trim package, addons, or additional modifications.
KYB Strut Mounts:
As the name implies, the strut mount is a component that attaches the suspension strut to the vehicle. The strut mount optimizes suspension performance by providing a smooth steering response and reducing vibration. The strut mount includes an insulator and on front struts, a steering pivot bearing. The insulator gets pushed and pulled as many as 1,500 times for every mile driven, and the bearing rotates every time you turn the steering wheel, so it’s easy to see how this part can become worn. To prevent noise and vibration, and preserve smooth steering and proper front end alignment, when you install new KYB struts, install new KYB strut mounts as well. They’re built to meet or exceed OE quality.
More about RalliTEK:
RalliTEK’s purpose for their springs is to provide an everyday solution for individuals who commute daily with their vehicle, but also enjoy adventures up to the mountain or country trail for winter sports or summer shenanigans. Springs that would not only solve relevant issues, but also improve the vehicle’s ability to perform in different climates around North America.
RalliTEK springs are designed, built, tested, and supported in Portland, Oregon, USA. A place known for it's varying climates and terrain. RalliTEK's springs come with guarantees of satisfaction, manufacture warranties, and faster customer support than other off-road spring brands on the market.
RalliTEK springs are made from chrome silicon spring steel. Chrome silicon spring steel is awesome for conditions involving high stress and for applications where shock or impact loading occurs. Chrome silicon wire can withstand higher and lower temperatures than high-carbon steel wire which makes it an obvious choice for RalliTEK users that make regular mountain trips in the snow and to Mordor. These springs make street driving more fun when unloaded due to the increase in spring rate. Riding on the trail when loaded with RalliTEK springs makes steering response and tracking much more predictable than with the same weight on factory springs.
RalliTEK does not recommend using overload springs with any upgraded rear sway bar unless you also upgrade the front suspension of your vehicle. This is to avoid increased oversteer.
